    Default 1886 Kampfe Brothers Star Safety Razor

    1886 Kampfe Brothers Star Safety Razor
    RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

    An antique Kampfe Brothers Star Safety Razor with one blade and blade holder.
    The third section of the handle, used for honing and stropping the blade is
    missing, and the blade needs sharpening before any use. Invented by the
    Kampfe Brothers.

    This beautiful Star has 1 original blade that appears unused. Modern SE
    blades will work in this razor. All I did was clean it with warm soapy water.
    I did not use any kind of polish on it. The material on the snap on the
    case has some vintage ware that can be seen in the pictures but it still
    snaps and keeps the box closed. The razor box is in very good vintage
    condition inside and out.

    1875 -The Kampfe brothers introduce the Star Razor, the first safety razor
    made in the United States. Its revolutionary design wins national and
    international awards for design and craftsmanship.

    King Camp Gillette is best known, incorrectly, as the inventor of the safety
    razor. The first safety razor was in fact invented in 1880's by the Kampfe
    Brothers. This Star razors produced by the Kampfe Brothers around 1903.
    As can be seen from markings on the razor itself and it's box, the razor had
    already won awards and patents long before Gillette.

    The head reads: Star Safety Razor

    Terms of Sale:
    When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you
    would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be
    expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item
    has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
    attention in my description. All sales final.
